Jason Voorhees is a fictional character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th (1980) as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs. Voorhees, in which he was portrayed by Ari Lehman. Created by Victor Miller, with contributions by Ron Kurz, Sean S. Cunningham, and Tom Savini, Jason was not originally intended to carry the series as the main antagonist. The character has subsequently been represented in various other media, including novels, comic books, and a cross-over film with another iconic horror film character, Freddy Krueger. He makes his fighting game debut as a guest character in Mortal Kombat X.

Netherrealm was successful at bringing Freddy Krueger into MK9, so it wasn't a huge surprise when Jason made his MKX debut. I'm not usually a horror movie fan (due to their predicable / boring plots), so I didn't care much when Jason was announced for another horror movie 'cash in'. To be honest, I don't give much of a fuck.... I give about as much as a fuck as Jason gives about making a fashion statement. lulz.

So what's so great about Jason anyway? He doesn't die or get hurt?? See.... that "idea" never jived with me. I say the following without an ego, because it's 100% true: As a lifelong, serious martial artist, I never could buy or accept the fictional idea that a "man" (in random horror flick) cannot be stopped or killed, because that's not realistic. (Plus, the victims in those movies can't fight back because they're retards.) See, you kick a man Jason's size in the balls (properly), hit him in the throat with a good knifehand, and the fucker will drop... I promise. :D Sorry to spoil all your horror-fanboy fun. Also, a big dumb tard wearing a mask like that would have terrible  peripheral vision, meaning he'd be easy to dodge, easy to sneak up on, and easy to kill. :)

Now that that's out of the way, I can talk about Jason in MKX. So yeah, uhh... they did him justice. :| Stabby stab stab. Fan service. Blah blah. Cool... I guess. I'll slap on a 3 rating.
